Physics has shaped our view of the universe by studying the basic concepts of space, time and matter. Physics not only lays the foundation for other natural sciences and many engineering disciplines but is also a fundamental part of modern technology. The Jacobs University physics major is a three-year BSc program. Its content is oriented along the guidelines of the Konferenz der Fachbereiche der Physik (KFP) in Germany, the Institute of Physics (Britain) for BSc in Physics, and the topics required for the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) physics test. The first year starts with a broad introduction to classical and modern physics and their mathematical foundations. The second year of studies features a thorough and advanced education in the foundations of physics (analytical mechanics, electrodynamics, quantum mechanics, and statistical physics), and in fields of recent interest such as computational physics or renewable energy. The third year finally features a varying selection of specialization courses such as condensed matter physics and particles, fields and quanta. A Jacobs University BSc in Physics provides a solid and at the same time flexible foundation for careers in diverse fields, from basic research in academia to engineering in industry or in the educational sector.
